Job Description

Application Architect
What do you do for a living? Oh, you say… just application architect for a hyper-growth cool software company that makes people happy about what they do at work. That’s all. Mic drop and walk away! 

Motivosity, a company you may have heard friends raving about, is looking for an application architect who is the Tony Stark of software, but a lot more fun to work with. 

Our Application Architect at Motivosity will be fully responsible for all aspects of software and services design, implementation and management. You’ll work side by side with product, design and the executive team at Motivosity in a highly collaborative and fun environment.

There are a few skills you’ll need to bring with you on your journey with us:

  • Expert level understanding of web scale architecture delivered via AWS, and a demonstrated grasp of cloud-native application architectural principles
  • Strong familiarity with Java / MySql / Javascript and the desire & ability to code every day
  • Practical experience implementing enterprise-grade solutions for event management / messaging / caching / distributed computational loads / machine learning technologies
  • Understanding of best practices in intrusion detection and prevention and solid grasp of secure software development principles
  • Familiarity with collaborative software development methodologies like scrum and kanban
  • Deep experience collaborating with product and user experience teams in developing implementation plans for commercial software.
  • 10+ years experience in full-stack software development


Part of the interview process here will be actual brainstorming and problem solving, so pretenders need not apply. 
Just as important as what you’ve done is what you would expect to be doing. This is no ivory-tower job. If you are a hands-on technologist who can roll up your sleeves to help optimize algorithms, take on a feature request like it’s your hobby, and work side-by-side with the engineering and product teams then you’re our kind of leader! 

Your duties will include:

  • Working with Product and Design to develop implementation plans
  • Identifying and eliminating bottlenecks to scale in production systems
  • Setting the bar for engineers in the writing of secure, high quality code
  • Finding and vetting novel technology to better solve customer problems and help Motivosity scale
  • Locate and assist in hiring top talent both on-shore and off shore
